A few weeks ago I shared with you some easy crochet patterns for making your own kitchen rags. I wanted to make something equally as good for those of you who are knitters!
I knew I was wanting a knitting stitch which was textured and would be good for scrubbing those tough to clean kitchen counters.
I stumbled upon the Irish Moss stitch and fell head over heels with the look, texture, and ease of this pattern. Making this particular pattern with a cotton yarn it becomes even more durable in my opinion. I didn’t create this stitch so I must give credit where credit is do!
WHAT I USED:
- size 9 needles
- 100% cotton yarn
- tapestry needle
I started by casting on 26 and proceeded with the pattern. I kept going until the rag was a little longer than my hand. This was about 30 rows total. Because of its size, this pattern works up really quickly. If you’re needing a last minute gift, knitting out a few of these would be a perfect solution!
While making this rag I was inspired to create a few more projects using the same pattern. I hope to share those with you VERY soon!
